Using environment variables

Some Python packages depend on environment variables for correct operation.

EXAMPLE: Theano requires that the directory containing the CUDA compiler is included in the $PATH environment variable in order for GPU acceleration to be enabled.

To change environment variables for all AEN applications, modify the project runtime configuration file .projectrc. For more information, see Using Compute Resource Configuration.

.projectrc sets several AEN internal environment variables, sets up the project environment and can set additional user environment variables for that project. This file is sourced when a user opens any AEN application—including Jupyter Notebook—and Jupyter kernels will be able to read the included environment variables.
